Forum: GratefulDead Subject: Re: kids and the Dead

My daughter turns 2 in August, and so far I've introduced her to my own singing of "Monkey and the Engineer" before putting her to bed at night, and various playings of Dead tunes while driving w/her in the car...did catch her 'dancing' somewhat to-of all things--a live '82 version of "Women R Smarter" once--appropriate!--but the toughest part is getting past the firewalls put up by my wife who is seriously burned out on the Dead after 6 years of marriage to me.

Plus, we've reached compromise by mostly playing Dan Zanes tunes, which I HIGHLY recommend for anyone w/really young kids. It's excellent kid AND adult music that's fun w/out being annoying.

he does a pretty cool version of "Walkin' the Dog" and actually does a duet of "Wabash Cannonball" with Bob Weir on one of his CD's.

We've moved past the Dan Zanes phase, but I 2nd that endorsement. He's one cool cat.
